Shinmon In Samukawa Jinja

Lanterns hung on the gate called Shinmon

Some lanterns were hung on the Shinmon Gate in Samukawa Jinja

Shot at Samukawa Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Samukawamachi, Kanagawa.

Got off the train at Miyayama Station, I walked to a Shinto shrine called Samukawa Jinja. Although this area is countryside now, the shrine is the most high-status shrine in Sagami-koku, most of the part is now Kanagawa prefecture. This area was the political center in the old times. Therefore, this shrine might be built in this place.

Moving forward the long approach to the shrine, the wooden gate called Shinmon came into my sight finally. The lanterns which celebrated the accession of the new emperor were hung on the gate. I stopped in front of the gate and watched it for a while. Meanwhile, a couple under an umbrella appeared and was about to walk through the gate. The main hall of this shrine was seen on the other side of the gate.
